You inspired me! I made tentacle-licious pants!
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Freezer paper INSANITY: Episode 1: Tentacle pants (full of pictures) on: February 03, 2009 02:42:36 PM

So I was inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289738.msg3288902#msg3288902 .... Tentacles!!! I decided to try out my Freezy-McPaper on a pair of boring pants. For those of you out there who are more artistically inclined than I would have a much easier time doing this free hand, but I suck at free-hand, so I spent FOREVER cutting out this stencil, which I drew right on the freezer paper...

It took me a while to decide on a color for the tentacle, not to mention I couldn't find the colors I wanted at the store.... But anyway... some of the freezer paper stuck too much so I hope it comes off in the wash...

Inside of the leg, I got it to match up pretty well there...

The outside of the leg didn't match up as well..

And the front!!!

Let me know what you think!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Excuse me, did someone say handbag?! (photo obese) on: January 31, 2009 10:54:06 PM
THANKS! I know when I heard $230 I almost.... well, I won't go into gory details, but it wasn't pretty... Roll Eyes And yes my little helper is 12 and she, I think, has had an even weirder young life than most... She is dyslexic, ADHD (big time), was home-schooled (now goes to some special school) but being ADD myself and having babysat her and her little sister for the last eight years they sort of become my sisters/ surrogate children. Its been great watching them grow up and I've learned so much from them... Also they are both INSANELY talented, so I'm kind of jealous...  Wink Sorry, rambling.... But Vermont = YAY!
and about a pattern, I didn't use one really but I could make up one or just tell you the measurements and the process if you want, let me know...
And thanks for all the love!

I've never made bags or like before but when one of of my "babysit-ees" (or adopted little sister, as I like to think of her) asked me to help her make a handbag for her mother I agreed. We copied the design/style of the bag her mother already uses, I took her shoping and she picked out the fabric and pretty much did the rest, but left her to do some of the cutting. I think it came out pretty well...

This was the bag we copied from, which apparently retails for about $230 (!!!)

In the works... It's made of two layers of canvas and covered by batiks

My little helper!

Inside pockets

Nearing completion...


And it stays open and upright for ease of throwing things in it...

And her mother loved it and couldn't believe we made it...hehee

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bell-Bottoms! Yay! on: January 29, 2009 07:09:05 PM

Ok so I've done a bunch of bell-bottoms before because they are more awesome than awesomeness and this last pair is no exception... This Pair was trickier than my previous pairs because I decided to give them stripes and also to back them with another layer of cloth so that they stand up better over time... I'm basically posting these in the hopes that it will inspire people to wear more bell-bottoms because there just aren't enough bell-bottoms out there....

So this is my pattern / backing / list of measurements that I started out with...

Stripes sewn together and pinned in...

Finished! yay!!
Gratuitous detail shots...

And yes that is "Good Times" on my TV...
